Installing a fuel pressure gauge

Most fuel pressure gauge have a standard 1/8 npt male connection. Do I need some kind of addapter to install it on my shrader valve?

Where can I get that?

my summit liquid filled fuel pressure gauge fit without any adapters. you may want to consider a 90 degree angle adapter.

Sharing info.....

When you remove the shrader valve you end up with a 1/16 female npt. Most pressure gauge are 1/8 male, so you need only a 1/8 to 1/16 adapter to connect a pressure gauge.

I found mine in a hydrolic shop.
